About us

The depth of the NJS world

"Bicycles designed to win" that have been stripped down to the utmost limit and pursue only speed are extremely primitive machines.
In an era where technology and AI are advancing day by day, and things that were once dreams can now be easily obtained, don't you think this primitive vehicle has a fresh appeal?
We aim to deliver the ultimate refined beauty that is unique to NJS to the world, which can be felt from its infinite possibilities. We hope that your own customized bicycle will take flight with your free imagination from here.

Friendship forged by fixed gear love

My friend Toshifumi Kodama, who is an active professional keirin racer, founded sfiDARE CRIT, the Japanese version of RED HOOK, which races on public roads without brakes, while continuing his activities as a keirin racer. He share the fun of track racing to street racing, where anyone can enjoy. His passion to share fixed gear with many people is the same as mine.
The Keirin Base was created to communicate not only Japan's unique culture of keirin but also to the world. It incorporates his knowledge and experience as a professional keirin racer, which only he can convey.

Worry-free and trustworthy NJS site

All frames and NJS used parts sold at Keirin Base are personally selected by Kodama from his fellow racers and maintained by Masterpista's Nakase.
We provide as many photos as possible to confirm the condition of the frames before purchase. Additionally, to prove that the frames have been properly maintained, they are affixed with Keirin Base stickers.

The Challenging Path of Keirin Cyclists 1

I'd like you to listen to my story for a moment. Since my father was also a keirin cyclist, keirin has always been a familiar presence in my life. However, my interest in keirin didn't develop until much later. When I was a child, I received a BMX bike and became a cycling enthusiast, participating in road races and going on cycling trips to various places. It wasn't until I was in high school that I started seriously pursuing track cycling.
